    One thought on “Early Warming: Crisis and Response in the Climate-Changed North”

    1. Everyone should read this, especially those who say they don t believe in global warming or that the planet is constantly going through cycles of change Nancy Lord talks to the people from island and coastal communities who are forced to leave the homes where their families have lived for thousands of years because they are literally eroding out from under them The people who are effected most are the people who do the least to perpetuate climate change The planet does go through cyclic change, [...]

    2. Those who believe in climate change should read this book, those who do not defiantly read it We are all coming to a narrow ugly end if we are not moving forward on climate change related issues It is serious Problems that are Irreversible, such as climate change should be view as a very important issue to overcome.

    3. The book had a lot of good information on global warming, and some very powerful first hand accounts However, even after just beginning, I found it very difficult to stay focused, and every few paragraphs my thoughts would wonder Good information, just hard to get through.

    4. A well thought out look at the changes Global Warming is making on the Arctic and the choices being made to deal with those changes.

    5. This book gives a personal view of what is happening now to people effected by climate change Worth the read especially if you don t believe in global warming.
